Dramatic Sunsets and a Change of View

July 9th 2019

We’re now a few miles inland, at Saint-Symphorien, Camping Vert Bord’Eau.

The truth was that the Archachon Bay can get a bit “Butlins” and, since the French kids broke up this week, it was heading that way.

Our final night had, instead of the previous picture postcard sunset, a dramatic storm-front.

The sunset on one side and the thunderstorm the other made for dramatic skies over the Bay.

Time to run for cover I think

As you can probably guess I had to run for cover as a heavy downpour followed.

Luckily we were packed away already.

I’m not sure what delights await us here but we booked 2 nights.

Watch this space.
